MANU DELAGO HANDMADE

For the new album the band 'Manu Delago Handmade' has teamed up with producer Matt Robertson (Björk, The Prodigy). The new material explores a vast array of sounds, ranging from sweet and delicate vocal lines with colourful Hang accompaniment, all the way through to chunky, electronic beats. The sound of the band is mature and well balanced, they have a real understanding of orchestration, moulding and continually changing the texture to create a different sound world with each piece.

The live show of Manu Delago Handmade is a definite must-see. The performance is delicate and sophisticated, moving with ease between heavily rhythmic and free-flowing spherical sections. Each of the four performers takes on several instruments, displaying the great musical diversity of every member of the ensemble.

  LIVING ROOM
CHRISTOPH PEPE AUER & MANU DELAGO


This pioneer duo focuses on exploring the bass clarinet’s huge tonal range and the enchanting sound of the Hang. Having formed in 2006, ‘Living Room’ have toured in more than 20 countries all over the world.

Whilst continuously pushing the boundaries within a variety of musical styles, their unusual pairing of instruments creates a highly unique texture of sounds. The first-ever Bass Clarinet - Hang - duo approaches their fresh take on chamber music without any confinements or restrictions, performing original compositions as well as creative arrangements of popular music, by artists such as Nirvana and The Beatles. 
Their shows are full of surprise and chance, often having left audiences wonderstruck, bewildered and bemused.
 
„…an oasis… lovely and genuinely creative music…“
(The Herald, Edinburgh)
